New Target of NATO

New Target of NATO 28 March, 2020

NATO, which was established for a common defence against an attack from any external force, is currently struggling with different targets.

Armies are in alarm because of COVID-19, which affects most of the world. NATO continues to support its allies, albeit for a different goal in this process. 45 tons of medical supplies acquired by the Romanian State to combat the epidemic were transported from the Republic of Korea to Bucharest under NATO's Strategic Airlift Capability (SAC) Program. The supplies carried by SAC's C-17 Globemaster III transport aircraft also includes 100,000 protective suites.

There are three C-17 Globemaster III transport aircraft in the SAC inventory established within NATO. The maintenance costs of these platforms are jointly met by the allies. The Alliance cooperates with Antonov Airlines as part of the SALIS (Strategic Airlift International Solution) program as well as SAC for strategic transport missions. With these programs, personnel and equipment transportation tasks are carried out from Europe to NATO's Afghanistan and Kosovo, as well as humanitarian operations in Haiti and Pakistan.
